In 1870 Alan Lewrie was a precocious seventeen-year-old living in London. Found in bed with his half-sister, he was sent off to the navy to be out of sight -- and perhaps lost at sea. Much to his surprise, Alan took to the sea, and before long proved himself as a seaman. The King's Coat is a novel of adventure and self-discovery, of breathtaking sea battles and awakening maturity. It introduces Midshipman Alan Lewrie on his premiere voyage and sees him off to a brilliant naval career at the height of the American Revolution.
